Abstract

The goal of this work has been to achieve a Geographic Information System, using innovative cartographic representation of the land and landscape, which can provide to the end users an easier and immediate access regarding tourist, cultural and environmental information. This is an ongoing research, carried out in collaboration with the Department of Civil, Engineering, Environmental, Aerospace, Materials (DICAM) of University of Palermo, with the objective to 548 Atti 17a Conferenza Nazionale ASITA - Riva del Garda 5-7 novembre 2013 achieve a complete integration between software used only by qualified specialists in the field and online platforms display. To experience this work, has been used tourist information about the four regional Sicilian Parks: Madonie, Nebrodi, Etna and Alcantara. The software tools used in this project are the ESRI ArcGIS 9 and Google Earth for the display platform of the virtual globe. For such purpose, the study has been divided into three steps:  First step: gathering maps necessary in order to achieve the objectives and the realization of the thematic maps, either for the environmentally protective restrictions and the territorial administrative boundary.  Second step: research and selection of tourist information for each park; creation and processing of its thematic maps.  Third step: export of thematic maps in Google Earth using KML interchange format, integrated with the addition of metadata containing the characteristics of places. The results obtained to date from this research show that the integration of GIS and online display platforms of satellite images, enriched in geographic content, can be valuable support to the new vision of “digital tourism”, allowing the use of tourist information to heterogeneous users not necessarily specialized. This study, in the near future, can be extended embracing new environmental contexts and more tourist information.
